Slice of Life 2019: Day 1

Well, here we go! It’s Slice of Life March!

“What is Slice of Life March?” you ask.

The Slice of Life March Story Challenge is a challenge to writers and teachers of writing to write every single day for a whole month. March 2019 is my second year joining with the Two Writing Teachers Community who sponsor this contest every March.

So, basically, you are going to see a blog post from me every single day this month, Lord willing and the creeks don’t rise.

Although difficult, the Slice of Life Challenge is rewarding and I love it. I am joined by several hundred other writers, slicers and blogger friends who seek the treasure of having written and posted 31 days in a row. Slices are little snippets of life, small wedges of what’s happening around me on a given day.

This month, you’ll see poetry, short fiction, day in the life, creative non fiction and lots of photography. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my slices. I am grateful to you.

Today’s inspiration comes from a couple of photos I found as I was looking back on February. I’ve really been trying to improve my photography skills in 2019 by just being with my camera more. Kind of like osmosis, I’m figuring that even if the camera mojo doesn’t wear off on me, then at least I look cool. Below, is Gabe, who doesn’t try to look cool. He just is! Thankfully, he likes practicing this camera hobby with me and doesn’t mind taking photo walks. Plus, he’s a ham, so I always have a subject.

I look forward to sharing my slices with you this month! As you know, your comments and words of encouragement are always welcome.

  1. This line jumped off your post at me: “I’ve really been trying to improve my photography skills in 2019 by just being with my camera more.” That’s the way it is with so many things. We just have to do it more to improve… like writing. Here’s to 30 more days!
